Veteran Benefits

At AFSC, we are honored to have nearly half of our workforce comprised of men and woman who have served in the U.S. Military. Too often Veterans are not aware of the government benefits they have earned or require assistance in attaining those benefits available to them. If you are an AFSC employee and are of Veteran status, you can use the services offered by AFSC’s Military Benefits Specialists—individuals who have been recognized as leading experts in their field.

For Live Advice, e-mail AFSC Benefits Specialists at GetVetBenefits@afsc.com
All discussions are confidential between you and your specialist. Our Specialists can help you consider eligibility, prepare paperwork, and advocate on your behalf within VA, DoD, and SSA.
